It is nice to have this quite large attractive fort in the centre of Telavi, however it is not very special and it will not take you very long to see it. I do not have any photographs so that tells a story.

The museum (recently opened) is really really well done and interesting. Not enough descriptions but it’s worth a visit. The royal palace in the complex is interesting and a must see of Telavi

The castle walls look good when walking around hem. But unfortunately, due to renovations I could not go inside to check out the Church and Palace.

Unfortunately, at the moment, the fortress is being renovated, so it´s not more than a construction yard. The fortress walls are quite nice, though.

Still under renovation at time of visit, however, we could wander inside briefly. Spectacular views over the city into the snow capped mountains.
